Inter Milan’s relentless pursuit of the Serie A title is showing no sign of stopping, as they moved eleven points clear in midweek. They will be looking to extend that advantage at the San Siro against Cagliari on Sunday.
Serie A Preview
It is looking like it will be a vintage season for Inter Milan this term, as they are striding towards their first league title since the 2009-10 season. Inter’s eleven point lead already looks to be enough to ensure the title, but Antonio Conte will not be appeased until their job is mathematically complete. Inter come into this fixture having won their previous ten league games, while they have been beaten just once in their previous 25 Serie A fixtures. Inter made hard work of their most recent victory in the league, as they edged past Sassuolo with a 2-1 success at the San Siro. Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring in the fixture after ten minutes, before Lautaro Martinez scored with 20 minutes remaining. They were made to hang on in the closing stages of the game, as Sassuolo pulled one back with five minutes remaining, but their job is just picking up points at this stage of the season.
Cagliari have work to do themselves in the final nine games of the season, as their safety in the league is far from assured. They come into this game in the bottom three, but will be aware that a win could lift them out of the drop zone. Their chances of winning at the San Siro do appear slim, as they have won just two of their last 22 games in the league. Furthermore, they have won just two games on the road this season, with both wins coming against sides in the bottom four of the league standings.
Inter Milan vs Cagliari Head To Head
Inter have won two of the previous three games against Cagliari. The last meeting between the teams took place in December, with Inter coming back from 1-0 down to win 3-1. Cagliari’s last win against Inter came back in March 2019, as they won 2-1 at the Sardegna Arena.
Inter Milan vs Cagliari Prediction
Cagliari have been in disappointing form throughout the season, and have found away wins very hard to come by. Inter have been dominant and we fully expect them to take another stride towards the league title this weekend.
